Summer means high energy consumption and high electricity bills but renowned portable power and renewable energy provider EcoFlow has recently launched 220W Bifacial Solar Panel that can capture up to 25 percent more solar energy and charges portable power stations faster as compared to others as it’s a two in one panel with a 220W primary side and a 155W side on the back for ambient light.
The front side of the Bifacial Solar Panel has a junction box. This side of the panel generates power by being positioned perpendicular to the sun’s rays. Since the rear side of the panel faces away from the sun, it does not generate electricity in the usual way. The rear of the panel uses ambient light to increase the overall performance of the product by up to 5%-25%.
“Bifacial solar panels have grabbed everyone’s attention in the solar PV industry — for all the right reasons. Bifacial PV solar panels offer what traditional panels can’t; the ability to absorb sunlight from the bottom of the panel in addition to the top. Their performance efficiency becomes higher if mirrors are used, or when ambient light levels are high. Using the product with the rear side of the panel facing the sun generates 80% of the power when compared to using the front side. Using the panel in this way does not have a negative effect on the product,” said Mrs. Jenny Zhang, Global Marketing Director, EcoFlow.
EcoFlow has raised the bar with this panel. The 220W Bifacial Solar Panel is completely water and dust-resistant. Rain, wind or shine, your panel is safe with an IP68 waterproof rating. It comes with its own carry case so you can take it anywhere. Once you arrive at your destination, simply unfold it and use it as a kickstand to get your sun exposure just right. The product is sturdy as well because the thin, one-piece tempered glass design makes it five times tougher than comparable panels, it can withstand heads up to 150 degrees Celsius.
